Needlework and Wood Working Update - January, 2022

 Good morning,

This month has been the month of afghan blankets and hats for me.  I've been working hard to restock the shop for these items that have been selling out quickly.

Above is a Black and White Afghan Blanket.  $165.  Only one available.  More information and images are here.

This Flower Garden Afghan Blanket is another favorite that sells out quickly.  It's a good thing I enjoy making all the different colored flowers so much!  $165.  Only one available.  More here.

 This one is slightly different from others I have made before.   The Circles and Squares design is appropriate for a man (Kjell really likes this one!) or a woman.  $165.  Only one available.  See more about it here.

We have many more afghan blankets in a variety of colors, styles, and sizes available in the shop, too.  Here's the link to see them.

 It is getting cold outside here in the Northern Hemisphere so warm hats are a must.  This original design Nordic Knit Scandinavian Intarsia wool blend hat is white, navy. and tan.  $40.  It is available here.   

More similar hats in a variety of colors are also available here.

 More Cloche Hats and Chemo Caps were also added to the shop this month.

These make great sleeping, thinking, reading hats, too!

All of these cloche hats/chemo caps are grouped in a shop section here.  From $8.

More Toilet Tissue Toppers are available here.  $8. each.

And, another item to restock is this heavy wool hat.  This one is a small size.  A similar larger size is in process now and will be available in the shop soon.

Kjell has quite a number of wood items in process now, but I don't have any finished items to show you this month.  Watch this space!

Thanks, again, for your encouragement, likes, favorites, comments, and purchases, too!   Your support of our shop is truly appreciated!

All the very best,

Your work is always so beautiful. I don't think I have ever seen a more striking afghan than the black and white.

Judy and Holly,
Thank you so much for your kind words. :) You are both so very much appreciated.

Special Note to Holly: I've visited your blog but don't seem to be able to leave comments. :( I just want to let you know I've been there.
